CBEIS Hosts Early Women of Architecture in Maryland Exhibit

12 Portraits (Square) Early Women of Architecture in MarylandIn the month of October (October 1-30), the Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies (CBEIS), the home for the School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) will host the Early Women of Architecture in Maryland exhibit as part of Baltimore Chapter’s American Institute of Architecture (AIABaltimore) Architecture Month.

AIABaltimore, in collaboration with Morgan State University’s School of Architecture and Planning and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, worked on the project to showcase women’s contribution to the architecture profession for over 80 years in the state of Maryland.

The exhibit, curated by Jillian Storms, AIA, focuses on Maryland/Washington D.C. projects of twelve women architects from the 1920s – 1960s.  The exhibit “speaks to the elegance and strength of these women whose stories are one of perseverance and determination and serve as an inspiration today.”

In conjunction with the exhibit,  on October 26, Jillian Storms and Assistant Professor Dale Green will share the latest research findings on professional lives of Maryland’s early minority architects.
